Hopefully we'll find out soon
That would be nice. I like birdseye more than nailhead for summer.
But it's Manton and he's never wrong.
I'd be interested in the AFB fresco.
Okay gents. Having a new Polo coat made up in camelhair. Can any W.Bill experts weigh in? Here are the options. My favorite is 35231, 400g. It seems a bit thin for a Polo coat, and for Boston winters. Thoughts?
Take a look at the 2 camelhair samples in Harrison's Topcoat book. May be the same weight, not sure. Colors are great.
^ probably the best bet.
239 looks nice though is less practical.
246 is cool though not really a polo coat sort of fabric if that's what you have in mind.
35231 color is great, but 400g is a bit light, I've been disappointed by most camel fabrics i've seen, all sponge, no density, another idea for a custom run....
I'd definitely be interested. 239 is my favorite of those. I'm thinking of getting a Polo coat made up in something like that eventually.
I have 235, and I think its the best of the lot.
I've also been thinking about having a polo coat made. Would be interested in 231 or 239, but in a heavier weight.
How warm is camel compared to wool, cashmere and alpaca? Are the fibers hollow? (and is it scratchy?)
Thanks for all of the replies guys. Despos, I checked out the Harrison's Camelhair online. They look nice. Before I request samples though, any idea what the weight is?
Won't know until I can check the book on Wednesday. The website didn't provide the weight. Pretty sure it is minimum 400gr, don't remember if it is heavier. Used the darker shade to make a polo 2 years ago. Cloth was great. Haven't tried W. Bill so I am unable to provide a comparison.
my swatch says the Harrison camel hair is 620g
